    is there any way how can I get my e-mail from Thunderbird on my W7 pc to Transformer? My laptop just died so I am considering Transformer, but without my mails...

    Syncing via GMail isnt a solution for me, because I have multiple e-mail accounts on many servers with both POP3 and IMAP.

    If your goal is solely to transfer your email, your best bet would be to create a dummy gmail account with IMAP and add it to tbird as a separate account (so that it doesn't go to the general inbox). Once you had that done, in tbird copy all the folders you want transferred to the dummy account and wait for it to sync with gmail's IMAP server. Finally, add the dummy gmail account to your choice of email client on your phone and wait for the IMAP sync to complete.

    If you want to continue to receive email on your phone from all these accounts, you can add them in as you like to the email client of your choice. Personally I'd recommend K9 for multiple email account management myself; it has an unified inbox similar to tbird's general inbox and is all around mucho handy.

    sync - A Subversion client on my tablet Asus Transformer?
  • Cédric Girard

    I am a developer, but I write some novels and short stories, and I use subversion to backup and synchronize texts files between PC. I want to read and write my text files on my Asus Transformer, but as far as I can see there is no subversion client for Android. I have only found Subdroid, but it is limited to history browsing, I can't get files and commit them.

    I know Ubuntu is available for the Transformer, and I already use it on PC. But it's not my first choice for this tablet.

    I have just released an open source svn client that uses actual svn protocol... it is called OASVN (Open Android SVN) you can get it on the play market here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.valleytg.oasvn.android

    Does svn checkout, update, commit, export, cleanup and revert. More to come soon.

    It looks like there's been a little work porting SVNKit to Android (see this), but actual source code isn't sitting around for anyone to use yet.

    It's a little bit incredibly gross, but you could try introducing another syncing setup. Something like Dropbox to store and sync files on your phone, and then commit the changes when you get to a machine with an SVN client. This is obviously less than ideal.
